While The Astoria Bookshop still doesn’t have a permanent Astoria home, that isn’t stopping them from bringing us great author & book events! Join them Tuesday 11/27 for The Books They Gave Me, an evening with local author Jen Adams. 

More about the event:

Remember that time your dad/best friend/roommate gave you a book that opened up a new world to you? Or how you thought you’d found “The One” only to be left questioning everything after he gave you a copy of The Fountainhead?

Join us for an evening with Jen Adams, author of The Books They Gave Me: True Stories of Life and Love.

Adams has collected 200 stories about books received from loved ones: the teenager whose misguided, much-older boyfriend gave her a copy of Lolita; the couple who confessed their love through Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy; the English tutor whose gift of Great Expectations helped realize his student’s potential.

The Astoria Bookshop presents The Books They Gave Me
Tuesday, November 27th, 7:00pm
The Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden
29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria
